Thanks for appreciating my efforts seti, but this may be a glitch, or just a REALLY huge tip.

it's not a glitch its a feature. Congrats on the payday. I once had an AP that finished in 90 minutes give me 10,000 credits. However, I do think this is unlikely to be a common occurance

Take the credit while you can and enjoy it.

The kitties would like about 100,000 WUs like that......and the proper wingys.

LOL...that would be quite the cat's MEOW!
Always remember.....kitties are all Angels with fur.

LOL, yup!
Then, Seti might even give out credits on a par with some bogus rates available on other projects......
Some are proud of their wild credit achievements elsewhere. I don't care, nor do I give them much credence.

I know what my stats are HERE. On Seti.
I know what I could post for creds if I chose to let the kitties point 9 good crunching rigs at another un-named project. I could double or triple my RAC.

If creds were all I were after, I would do that.

I happen to be VERY proud of my accomplishments here.

This is my home. This is where my heart is. Whatever the rate of credits granted, I am treated the same as all others here.

That's a good enough benchmark for me.

Meow!

I picked Einstein as my second project (for mac GPU use) as they were trying to bench mark their credits to SETI. Credit inflation is disingenious.
